'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Settled Moko inks new deal

The new contract that Aaron Mokoena had been discussing, and apparently agreed, for sometime has now been officially signed with it confirmed on The Pompey Site yesterday.

Moko said that he had no hesitation in committing his future to the club, with a new contract trying him at the club until the summer of 2013: 'I wanted to commit myself to Pompey because this is where I belong.

'This club is a big club and I'm settled here. I've been in football for years so I know what makes me happy. I feel happy here and that's why I want to stay.'

He might not be the most 'technically gifted' football around, in fact he is FAR from this, but he is, for me, without a doubt up their with the best in terms of those that will battle, wear their heart on their sleeve and give their all without question. I also see him as being one of the most genuine characters in the game.

Clearly, in a day and age when all get good money, the 29-year-old will be on 'decent' money at Fratton - and I dare say this new contract has come with a slight wage increase? Which would be a bit of a worry - so the security of this for a while longer, especially at his age, would have helped him decide but when all is said and done if he did not want to be here he would not be here, right?

I like the guy, and think the majority of Pompey fans have now been won over by him to be honest, after all 'who needs a Messi when you've got a Mokoena'...

    I wasn't impressed with the guy for a long while, still have doubts about his midfield ability. What I don't doubt is that his opinions are thoughtful and considered, and whilst sometimes I'm not sure he is best placed to be club captain, disciplined tackles aren't always uppermost in his mind; i am sure he is best placed to be the team media spokesman. The freedom of the City of Lindon is something he should be proud of and the club should be proud to have him. Linvoy, Kanu & Mokoena; some if the finest gents in football.

    In the bigger picture, It also means he would have received financial guarantees.

    Every club needs some battlers for when the going is tough.
